Trans-ethnicity and world beat, contaminated by sour electronics that manipulate the African tradition of Baba Sissoko and translates it into a mixture of spurious sounds shaken by tribal techno rhythms. DjeliBit, named after the two musical units that make it up, is the latest work of the Malian griot multi-instrumentalist in collaboration with Nicodemo, a record producer active for many years in the area of musical research, and Lilies On Mars, a female duo who operate somewhere between alt techno and shoegaze. Along with the ethnic branch of Baba Sissoko (Djeli) and the collaborators unit of modernity (Bit), there are also the revolutionary declamations of the Bronx poet Jack Hirschman ("Djallo Djallo") and the soul trumpet of Gabriele Stotuti ("Djuku Malola" and "Wori Ko"). In nine tracks, that are pulsing and vocally melodic, DjeliBit launches spores of metropolitan sounds on the eclectic virtuosity of Sissoko's Afro-beat, in an artistic union exalted by the arrangements of Nicodemo and the intangibility of modular synths and vocalization of Lilies On Mars.
